    How to implement CRM

    The implementation of a customer relationship management (CRM) strategy is best treated as asix-stage process, moving from collecting information about your customers and processing it tousing that information to improve your marketing and the customer experience.

    Stage 1 - Collecting information The priority should be to capture the information you need to identify your customers and

    categorise their behaviour. Those businesses with a website and online customer service havean advantage as customers can enter and maintain their own details when they buy.

    Stage 2 - Storing information The most effective way to store and manage your customer information is in a relational

    database - a centralised customer database that will allow you to run all your systems from the

    same source, ensuring that everyone uses up-to-date information. Stage 3 - Accessing information With information collected and stored centrally, the next stage is to make this information

    available to staff in the most useful format. Stage 4 - Analysing customer behaviour Using data mining tools in spreadsheet programs, which analyse data to identify patterns or

    relationships, you can begin to profile customers and develop sales strategies. Stage 5 - Marketing more effectively

    Many businesses find that a small percentage of their customers generate a high percentage oftheir profits. Using CRM to gain a better understanding of your customers' needs, desires andself-perception, you can reward and target your most valuable customers.

    Stage 6 - Enhancing the customer experience

    Just as a small group of customers are the most profitable, a small number of complainingcustomers often take up a disproportionate amount of staff time. If their problems can beidentified and resolved quickly, your staff will have more time for other customers.

    There could be a lack of commitment from people within the

    company to the implementation of a CRM solution. Adapting to acustomer-focused approach may require a cultural change.There is a danger that relationships with customers will breakdown somewhere along the line, unless everyone in the businessis committed to viewing their operations from the customers'perspective. The result is customer dissatisfaction and eventual

    loss of revenue. Poor communication can prevent buy-in. In order to make CRM

    work, all the relevant people in your business must know whatinformation you need and how to use it.

    Weak leadership could cause problems for any CRM

    implementation plan. The onus is on management to lead byexample and push for a customer focus on every project. If aproposed plan isn't right for your customers, don't do it. Sendyour teams back to the drawing board to come up with a solutionthat will work.
